The Townie® Commute 8D is a stylish commuter built to handle the rigours of the road. It offers the comfort and control of the best-selling Townie® with additional features that allow riders to go the distance in style. A comfy, upright riding position provides a wide view of the road so you can spot potential hazards, opportunities and detours. And by detours we mean happy hours.
You're looking for a bike that has all the upgrades necessary for a safe and stylish commute. The Townie® Commute 8D features our game-changing Flat Foot Technology®, cushy balloon tyres and swept-back handlebars for ultimate comfort and control. If you want to get around on two wheels more often, this bike is for you.
Complete with heavy-duty front and rear racks and LED lights, alloy mudguards and an ABUS ring lock, this ride is ready to roll. A Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifter glides through 8 speeds while powerful front and rear linear-pull brakes give you all the stopping power you need. Top it off with a ringer bell and you're set.
